Pedro Sánchez Castejón - la moción de censura

Quick starter to recap news over the half-term of Rajoy departing and a way into looking back at the transition to democracy through a modern lens. Please note that the auto-generated translation from Microsoft into Spanish from Catalan is not accurate and I can’t edit the text using Google Inspect.
